NEW SMYRNA BEACH, FL, DAYTONA BEACH, FL and WAITSFIELD, VT
Your new travel guides…Sherry and Todd Taylor are the new owners of Discovery Map of New Smyrna Beach and Daytona Beach
Discovery Map International, the leading provider of curated guides to top tourist attractions, cities and towns throughout North America, recently announced Sherry and Todd Taylor as the new owners of the Discovery Map of New Smyrna Beach and Discovery Map of Daytona Beach. The Taylors purchased the two maps from long-time Discovery Map owners Dorothea and Philip Knaub of New Smyrna Beach in December 2018.
“We grew up using Discovery Map in our hometown, in our travels before starting a family and now our kids collect the maps. When I started distributing the maps at the end of last year, it just felt right,” said Sherry Taylor. “So, we asked Dorothea and Philip if they might be interested in selling their franchise locations. We are very glad they said yes!”
Todd Taylor has worked professionally as a business consultant and in customer management solutions for 20 years. Sherry is an involved member of the community and is drawn to the creative opportunities Discovery Map provides.
The couple, who reside in New Smyrna with daughters Rilynn (10 yrs.) and Piper (9 yrs.), look forward to the challenge of filling some very large shoes. “Discovery Map prints are a tremendous, fun informational resource. As map users ourselves, Todd and I are excited to be a part of that,” said Sherry Taylor. “What has truly stood out to us are the great business relationships Phil and Dorothea have fostered. We want our clients to know moving forward, Todd and I are equally committed to their success and the high level of advertising quality Discovery Map is known for.” Discovery Map prints colorful, hand-drawn maps that have become a favorite of travelers for navigating local dining, attractions, businesses, cultural experiences and tourist destinations.
Discovery Map of Daytona Beach and Discovery Map of New Smyrna Beach include sites and destinations ranging from restaurants to shopping venues, art museums to theaters and various activities. Discovery Maps are typically found on display in local stores, restaurants, hotels and tourist attractions. In addition to the printed map, DiscoveryMap.com offers curated content for visitors to Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach and those planning a trip (it’s even great for locals who are unaware of their own town’s hidden gems). The interactive map found the website is to scale, thus can be used for turn-by-turn directions, as well as to access detailed information about areas of interest, places to eat, lodging and other noteworthy sites.
